Some of my friends sit around every evening
And they worry about the times ahead,
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference
And the promise of an early bed…
— "Radio Radio," by Elvis Costello
I’ll be joining some of my friends this evening to talk about the times ahead and how to get there — on the radio.
Specifically, we’ll be on Cynthia Hardy’s "On Point" show on WWDM (101.3) from 6 to 7 p.m. Last I heard, J.T. McLawhorn and Howard Duvall will be the other guests.
We’ll be talking about the subject of my column today. Listen in, and then leave your comments on this posting. Don’t be overwhelmed with indifference; join in.
You either shut up or get cut up;
they don’t wanna hear about it.
It’s only inches on the reel-to-reel.
And the radio is in the hands of such a lot of fools
tryin’ to anaesthetise the way that you feel
RADIO is a sound salvation;
Radio is cleaning up the nation…
So you had better do as you are told.
You better listen to the radio.
